Today is Father's Day in Brazil.
My husband is a great dad. Here are some of the reasons why.....
He enjoys his kids. He plays with them. He genuinely sees his kids as blessings from the Father and never rushes through his time with them. He sees the importance of spending time together.
He is a great example to them of what a husband is supposed to be. Our relationship as husband and wife is second only to his relationship with God. I am so thankful that our kids are growing up seeing this. I can't think of any gift more important than a strong marriage that parents can give to their children.
He loves to make memories as a family. He much rather spend money on a vacation or even just a family day trip or outing than any toy, gadget, or other "stuff". Our kids all have treasure banks of memories of times our family has spent together.
He accepts his God-given role as spiritual leader of our family. He consistently studies, reads, prays and examines himself to become even more the person that God intends for him to be. He is not afraid to really live his faith - no matter what anyone else may say or think. Another way he is a great example.
He understands his role in our ministry to be a "spiritual father" - whether they be single college students or young husbands and fathers. Yet, he does all of this not viewing these guys as ministry objects, but as friends. He genuinely enjoys every minute that he spends with them.
For these reasons and many more he is an incredible dad.
Happy Father's Day Kevin! I wish we could all be together today. I love you!
